Lenovo has finally launched a successor to their wildly popular K3 Note, the Lenovo Vibe K4 Note, which looks like it is more than worthy to fill the K3 Note’s big shoes.
Alongside several interesting features, Lenovo will also be bundling its midrange device with a virtual reality (VR) headset.
USB Type C is the new standard for connectivity. Not only it is super fast with transfer speeds up to 10 Gbps, it is also capable of pushing more power and it can even replace your existing HDMI cables as well. As the one connector to rule them all, the new reversible port will be a common sight in upcoming smartphones, tablets and laptops.
To be in the forefront of this new standard, Acer has announced at CES 2016, the World’s first monitors to support USB Type-C. The H7 monitor series lets you connect your smartphone or laptop onto a bigger screen, while allowing you to transfer files and charge the device simultaneously. This basically sounds like a monitor with a built-in Microsoft Display Dock.
Now, serial leakster @evleaks has published images of what looks to be the tab in question.
In other news, popular drone manufacturer DJI are collaborating with Ford and the United Nations on a noble quest to improve rescue operations with drones. How? With their annual development challenge of course!
It seems this week is all about drones and their development because we have another awesome bit of UAV goodness heading your way.
We all live in homes and we all want secure homes. But with doors, windows and grills, one can only do so much to protect their own home. Let’s face the facts, break-ins happen all over the world though it doesn’t hurt to have some sort of surveillance system around your compound.
Meet the Netatmo Presence, a smart outdoor security camera released at CES 2016.
Wait, another “smart” home-monitoring system that has a motion detector? Well yeah but this one can identify the differences between a person, animal and car.
The MacBook Air and MacBook Pro uses a MagSafe charging connector that latches to your laptop with the help of magnets. It is an interesting safety feature as it disconnects if someone tripped over your cable, avoiding the risk of dragging your laptop to the ground. When Apple introduced the new ultra-thin MacBook, it was ditched in favour of the all-new USB Type-C. This is supposedly the future standard of connectivity, allowing you to deliver power, data and even high-resolution video on a single cable.
Sadly that means you’re stuck with an old-school cable design like other gadgets. If you want to restore that MagSafe feature of old, cable maker Griffin finally has a solution for you.
What’s your morning routine like? You probably wake up, brush your teeth, take a dump, shower, change and head down for a cup of your favourite wake-me-up drink while you catch up on your social media feed — Facebook, for instance.
Unless you’re me, then that all changes depending on how many times I hit the snooze button.
Facebook could probably be your favourite social media platform. Heck, you’re probably reading this article because it popped up on your Facebook feed. Now, what if I told you that your favourite social media platform was secretly experimenting on you?
The Galaxy S6 and S6 edge had opened a new chapter for Samsung with its premium glass and metal design, along with top specs that hold well to this very day. Of course, there are many that frown upon its compromises. It was their first flagship to not have a removable battery and most critical of all, it lacks an expandable microSD slot. If you were disappointed by the Galaxy S6, there’s a lot to look forward to on the upcoming model.
Our love of robots has best been displayed throughout the films and TV shows that have captured our hearts. Be it scary or adorable, we’ve come to know that they play an integral role despite not actually “being” human.
Across our screens, we’ve seen lovable and iconic characters like WALL-E, Iron Giant, C-3PO, R2-D2 and most recently, BB-8. Though advancements in technology as finally gifted us our own personal droid; hats off to Sphero, they made miniature BB-8s real.
But as of today, the makers have just shown off a prototype wearable at CES 2016 that takes it a step further, allowing you to control your BB-8 with the Force!
